A VINTAGE STREET MARKET

Northwest Florida Fairgrounds, Fort Walton Beach

defranceantiques@gmail.com

Mark and Stacie Hoard, owners of DeFrance Antiques, have taken on the huge task of starting a new antique show in Fort Walton Beach. A Vintage Street Market incorporates not just antiques but retro, vintage, farmhouse, shabby chic, coins, jewelry, man items and local artists. Vendors are expected from all over the southeast.

Annie Omar, owner and founder of Maison Blanche Vintage Paint Company, will be doing painting demonstrations on Saturday and two on Sunday, showing different techniques and finishes that can be used to refinish furniture pieces. A Q&A session will follow.

Ron Beeman will be on hand with examples of his work restoring cast iron pieces, with pieces in each stage of the restoration process. And, hopefully, Mr. Beeman will do a cooking demo as well. Plus Dave Harding (hand-carved wooden spoons and cutting boards), Angela Boudreaux (onsite glass and crystal repair), and Donnie Morgan (live music).

Interested vendors can call Ms. Hoard at 850-543-4579. Entry fee is $5 for the event. Food will be available.

A portion of the event proceeds will be donated to Opportunity Place Inc., a local housing facility that helps homeless individuals and families become self sufficient.
